    School mates. Band mates. Soul mates . . .

    When Andrew Ridgley took George Michael, the new boy at school, under his wing, he discovered a soul mate.

    In Wham! George and Me, Andrew tells the story of how they rode a rollercoaster of success around the world while making iconic records and surviving superstardom with their friendship intact. It is a memoir of love, music, the flamboyant 1980s and living in a pop hurricane.

    No one else can ever tell their story - because no one else was there.

    'A joyous celebration of the Wham! years. For anyone who was a teenager in the early 1980s, it will take you on a nostalgia trip. It's an honest but affectionate account of a remarkable duo who remained true to their origins and their friendship throughout it all' Daily Express

    'As infectious as their music' Daily Mirror

    'A remarkably generous memoir. In more than one sense, the biography of a friend' Spectator

    'A great story' Saturday Live, Radio 4

    'A lovely book. A love letter to George' Graham Norton, BBC One

    'Charming, heartfelt . . . there's a real poignancy to Ridgeley's description of Wham!'s glory days' Sunday Times
